I began working at MSCC of Morton 2013 in the Social Services Department. After four years in Social Services, the opportunity came available to transfer to the Activities Director position.
I was born in Canada and raised in Brandon, MS, to a large family of three brothers and one sister, I currently live in Pelahatchie (Crossroads/Walters community) with my husband of 19 years, daughter (18 years old), three dogs (Jack Russell, Chihuahua, and Chocolate Lab), and one Dutch rabbit. I spend my time away from work traveling, taking weekend trips, spending as much time as possible with family, shopping, going to the movies with daughter and going on ‘dates’ with my husband, camping/being outdoors, playing the piano, playing with my pets, and making people laugh and smile. My motto in life is “Smile, it makes people wonder what you have been up to!”
I love my job because I get to spend my day having fun and laughing to just about anything with the residents on a regular basis. I am able to be silly and tell my corny jokes with unconditional love and laughter from the residents, even if they don’t ‘get’ my jokes. I love that I have been able to get to really know them on a personal level and the way they make me feel like I am part of their family that means so much to me. Whenever I may take some time off from work, it never ceases to amaze me how many residents and many times they will make sure I know that they missed me. So, being that person that brightens their day and help them forget their ‘woes’ for a little while, that is just one of many reasons why I love my job!
